I just wanted to ask, where you need it. I have never used it. How can I 
improve my code with it?

Independent from this question I am concerned with putting so much into 
'base'. 'transformers' can be updated independent from the compiler, and 
'base' cannot. Thus for me, 'Constant' in 'transformers' has the right 
name (understandable to the casual user) in the right place.
